Really nice colour there, a great deep shine too. From your pictures it looks like you're painting outside, is the cold not making it difficult?

Everything I see looks great. Beautiful paint.

 

I would say that most experienced modelers on this forum recommend painting all body parts at the same time and in the same way. Don't know if you did that or not, but your posts indicate you painted them separately at different times.
